Agent 99's partnership with the gifted and pioneering cinematographer Valentina Caniglia, is one born out of a long standing relationship cemented by the symbiotic understanding of this unique artist's gifts and goals. She's shot projects in all mediums: from episodics to docs, shorts to features, music videos and commercials.  Valentina's an award winning DP who always infuses her vision and passion into a project, while remaining enthusiastically open to collaboration, surmounting challenges, discovering and building creative avenues and solutions. Whether it's a hefty or modest budget, Valentina always delivers above and beyond expectations. It's all about creating the best work. 

 

Her prolific career has taken her around the world; throughout the US, Europe, Africa and The Middle East. From Paris to Palestine, Algeria to Athens--(Greece or Georgia), Valentina's comfortable in her skin and any environment or culture she's thrust into. She connects seamlessly with people of all backgrounds and loves immersing herself in the new and unfamiliar. Fun fact: After shooting the award winning feature, "Pomegrantes and Myrrh", she opted to stay on and live in Palestine: many months after production had wrapped.

 

Valentina's bicoastal, a proud union member of Local 600 and is the 1st woman inducted into the Italian Society of Cinematographer's (DP union), known as AIC, IMAGO. She speaks Italian, English and Spanish and owns a RED camera.
